Question Strange smell.. :S? - April 10th 2010, 04:42 PM

For the past few days i've been having a strange smell in my nose, its like an ammonia/bleechy smell. i have server headaches with it and tightness in my chest. Its hard to take a deep breath.

I went the A&E two days ago and they said it should be okay, but they did no blood tests or any tests so i don't know how they can be sure.

I'm taking painkillers and using Vick inhaler for the smell, but neither seem to be helping.

Anyone ever experinced this or no what it could be?

No, I havent experienced anything like that before.
Do your sinus's play up in this warmer weather as the pollens are coming out?
Becareful not to over use the vic as nasal sprays and the such, can become addicted - you cant clear your nose without them.

I'd leave it for a week and if its no different then go and see your local GP

I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.

I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

Hey there,

I sometimes get a strange smell in my nose when I'm getting a cold or illness, I don't think it's completely uncommon. The headaches and tightness in your chest may indicate that it's a symptom of an illness too.
I think that it's good that you've been to accident and emergency to get yourself checked out - that was a very good step forward. I think that if they've said things have been okay then hopefully things should pass within time. If you're still concerned, you may find it useful to visit your GP about your illness - it is possible that you have an infection.
I would also suggest that you persist with the painkillers and inhaler for the time being, as they may be able to slightly alleviate any symptoms you may be suffering from.

Take care of yourself.
